Hello to everyone. Name is Al. I've been playing guitar for about 48 years and have finally decided to get into learning to play surf. I've always loved the sound but for whatever reason waited a long time to give it a go. I've pretty much been strictly a chord strumming rhythm player so this foray into picking is a nice challenge. My daughter and her boyfriend bought me a Squier VM Jaguar as a gift and I then purchased a (new to me) 1973 Peavey Classic 410 to play the Jaguar. I'm looking forward to learning some cool stuff and I'm sure this is the place whenever I have a question, which I'm sure I will.
